Xinja has decided to once again open up our capital raising to a wider range of investors. We would have liked to do this via another equity crowdfunding round, however regulations prevent us from doing so (having more than $25m in assets means we are no longer eligible). This means the offer is only open to ‘sophisticated’ or ‘wholesale’ investors (as defined by ASIC).
What is a ‘sophisticated’ or ‘wholesale investor’ ?
This is a term defined by ASIC (Australian Securities and Investments Commission) and the Corporations Act as a person who has:
– a gross income of $250,000 or more per annum in each of the previous two years or
– net assets of at least $2.5 million or
– is investing in excess of $500,000 or
– holds an AFSL or
– has more than $10m in assets
What is the minimum investment?
The minimum investment parcel is $20,400 for 5,000 shares at $4.08 per share.

What if I’m not a ‘sophisticated investor’ but want to invest ?
We realise many Xinja customers won’t fall into this category and we did recommend, as part of our recent submission to the Senate Select Committee on Financial Technology and Regulatory Technology (#135), that the asset restriction on companies offering Equity Crowdfunding (which is open to all) be lifted. If this should happen, we plan to do another ECF raise and will let all Xinja customers know as soon as we do.
